Prepare to be dazzled! Get your glow on with these luminescent lovelies.
Metallics continue to shine albeit with a more 2.0 feel. Irish labels Manley and Luke Lovely do grown-up gloss with contrast panelling; while designer Catriona Hanly opts for unbridled Studio 54-meetsChâteau de Versaille vibe. Highstreet veterans M&S win big with their semi-matte take on the trend (khaki, anyone?) while Zara’s mirror loafers get a shoe in with seasonally fulgent footwear.
DO DAYWEAR: Layer a slouchy sweater over a metallic skirt (best pleated). Just add chunky brogues.
DESK-TO-DINNER: Upscale up a simple black dress with a high voltage clutch.
DOWNTOWN: Dial down the ‘notice me’feel of metallics with low key cousins like gunmetal, platinum, matte gold and pewter.
DEVIL-MAY-CARE: Brave it like Michael Kors with a top-to-toe gold lamé look.
